As aquarium fish
Can be a threat to smaller fish and shrimps
This species may eat small fish and especially small shrimps, there are, however, some aquarists who manage to get them to coexist just fine.
Rearranges rocks and sand
This species has a habit of rearranging rocks and sand.
Make sure rocks are placed securely on the substrate, so they cannot toppled over.
This species is nocturnal and therefore the most active when the light is dimmed or turned off.
This species needs good hiding places, for example, between live rocks.
Family description (Enoplometopidae)
Reef lobsters (Enoplometopidae) can be very attractive, but one rarely sees them, as they only appear when it's dark. They are therefore most suited to aquarists who have a special liking for these animals.
